I recommend this to anyone that wants a short interesting visit to a piece of English History. The house is superb and the gardens. You will only need an hour at most. Plenty of time for tea and cakes in the village. Considering this was once derelict, it is in fantastic condition. TIP: If coming from the village centre past... More

What was once two cottages last occupied by a real woman with character. This shows how basic the living conditions were back in the mid 1300s, folk couldn't survive with that today. A lovely thatched cottage with rooms simply furnished as they would have been. A lovely garden with raised vegetable beds and new sowings of veg planted.

Very friendly staff and excellent guide explained the property. A visit will not take more than one hour and little outside of the house to see. The village is well worth a walk around.

How did the clergy men get their supermarket deliveries I pondered as I tried to find somewhere to leave my little fiat, to no avail.Everywhere I tried to park there were yellow lines or chains across gaps or little stumpy bits of wood. Impossible. Finally there I was amazed at some of the tat they sell in these places, and... More

Visit this quaint property looked after by the National Trust. Set in a lovely typically English village, it truly is a great place to look over.

Being a NT member, I have visited this little place on a number of occasions. I have to admit to finding the small garden more interesting thabn the house and the village in which it is situated in even more interesting to walk around.

Beautifully kept clergy house adjacent to the large church in this little East Sussex village. The village itself is a delight so best find somewhere to park and explore not just this house but explore the whole area. The house has fame as being the first to be puchased by a fledging National Trust at the turn the 19th to... More

Lovely staff. Very helpful and cheery. The house itself is well worth a visit. Makes you wonder how they coped with the cold and damp in those days.
